Kenny Millions / Damon Smith / Weasel Walter - Fuck Music... Tell Jokes – You'll Make More Money (BALANCE POINT ACOUSTICS 2018)

Recorded live in the hipster graveyard of Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, Fuck Music… Tell Jokes – You’ll Make More Money features the diaper jazz/fuck you trio of Kenny Millions, Damon Smith, and Weasel Walter. Millions (aka. Keshavan Maslak), who recorded with the 1970s era free jazz heavy hitters (David Murray, Paul Bley, Sunny Murray) before growing disillusioned with the music industry to become a noisy and more unhinged artist, is in full confrontational mode. He scolds the trust fund kids in the audience, tells them to suck his dick, says “fuck you” a lot, and plays skronk sax and bass clarinet while wearing Depends. A real mature session. Millions is joined by the equally fiery Damon Smith, a Quincy, Massachusetts-based double bassist who has played with the legends (Brötzmann, Cecil, Marshall Allen), and journeyman drummer Weasel Walter, known for this work with The Flying Luttenbachers and Lydia Lunch. The pro-dubbed cassette, manufactured in a limited edition of 100 copies, features photos by Peter Gannushkin. Recorded live at Heck in Brooklyn on February 2, 2018.
